the parallels among them, how they handle things. >> i think in our first segment about martha washington, you saw martha as the person who protected the aspect of the role, the social partners to the president, and a hope to the nation. when you get to abigail, she becomes a political partner with her husband and pioneers that role. dolley is the one that brings the two of them together. she becomes the social and political partner for her husband. i think that sets all kinds of precedents for the future first lady. she is still held up as a standard by which other people measure themselves today. >> we will spend the first 35 minutes on those important white house years. it was such an interesting time for the country and we want to make sure you understand the history of it. we will learn how this young quaker woman became an internationally known first lady and we will end up with her legacy. we welcome your participation. throughout the program, we will have phone lines open. you can send us a tweet and use #firstladies. there are people wanting to know about martha jefferson. they are th

affairs correspondent has the latest at this hour. martha raddatz is here. it's almost a week into this threat. what is the very latest tonight? what are you learning? >> reporter: overnight there was a u.s. drone strike in yemen. when you get a threat from a specific country like yemen u.s. intelligence moves everything toward that country, more drones to try to disrupt that network. the u.s. believes this plot is still active. as one intelligence official told me, the cause for serious concern remains. and the men behind it, al qaeda leader nasir al wuhayshi and al-asiri are still in hiding. what really has intelligence worried is that the plot will morph into something else, now that the embassies and consulates are closed, that the terrorists will set their sights on a soft target overseas, a hotel or something else that is largely unpunprotected. still a lot of concern tonight. >> moving into something impossible to predict. >>> tonight the fbi is asking for everyone watching this program to help solve a mystery. re-opened today after nearly 50 years, aew born was kidnapp
, and from there to martha's vineyard for their annual summer vacation. the president didn't take one last year, because he was out on the campaign trail. i have traveled with the president on a number of hi vacations, martin. they're usually not that restful, at least for the press corps. >> indeed. thank you very much. >>> turning to the congress, i want to bring in senator sheldon whitehouse. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> we've spent two years being told that the affordable care act is in fact the four horsemen the apocalypse that will bring death, destruction, famine upon the nation. is that right, sir? >> i think the exact opposite is true. we've seen families across the country enjoy the benefits of added coverage. we're about to see fair, level, transparent markets for insurance that give consumers a real short, start to open up. across the country we've seen the delivery system reform parts of the bill save lives and improve the quality of care. >>> each year we hear another collision in the constituency between a republican and the voting public. do you thinks this is
. >> and then he is off to martha's vineyard for a vacation. and the mere mortals are upset because the roads are closed. >> i have no problem with president obama. if he likes to wear that little helmet and ride a bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. >> i mean, give me a break, goldie. >> you know, president bush spent more time on the crawford ranch i believe than he actually spent in the white house. so if we want to talk about vacations, we should first talk about the last commander in chief. this president has every right to take a vacation. he has every right to play basketball or any other hobby that he may have or play golf, just as speaker boehner does. these kinds of assaults on the president i think again are due to what i call obama derangement syndrome. they just can't believe that an african-american man is afforded the same rights as any other white president who has held that office. >> rev, quickly, the congress is also on vacation. >> no. >> sure. >> they've had one vote on jobs-related legislation, not on the mortgage thing that the president was talking about this week.
president. >> and then he is off for martha's vineyard for a vacation and they are upset because the roads are closed. let me play the question about his comments about trayvon martin. this was not a case about race. >> you know i think all of us were troubled by what happened. any of us who were parents were troubled. it doesn't mean he was a perfect kid. none of us were. when you are a teenage boy you are going to mess up. but, what i think all of us agree to is, that we should have a criminal justtice system that was fair and just and i wanted to explain why this was a sensitive topic for african-american families a lot of people who had sons know the experience that they had being followed or viewed susspecifically. >> this case was never about race. what do you make about this comments? >> there is one thing that barack obama is genius at. that is sounding like a perfectly reasonable observe ever of race relations in america when he and his administration have been at the forefront. when eric holder is continuing to hold open a probe even as barack obama says he accepts the jury's dec
the helmet, ride the bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. he evacuated 22 embassies friday, spent the weekend playing, his own words, i golfed, played basketball, took pictures with friends in the oval office, blew out candles. >> how about issue a statement or have a press conference, act like you're responsible, that you're not auditioning to play commander in chief in hollywood but you want the job and are serious about terror. this is nothing new to me. this is a president that doesn't have the stomach for terror. if the reports are correct, it was clinton and panetta told him to put the thing on bin laden. i don't think it is a priority. i think he should move the white house to california capital hollywood. >> i think that's disrespectful to the family and soldiers serving overseas, to families of people protecting the embassies closed down. for the president not to be in the oval office and making national security a priority, but instead he is more concerned about his own birthday parties. i can't tell you how many e-mails i got from obama for america, from michelle obama,
